    Other features of Mageia 2 Alpha 3 include shipping the Linux 3.2 stable kernel (but it will be replaced by Linux 3.3+ for its final release), glibc 2.14.1, a near-final KDE 4.9 snapshot, GNOME 3.3.3 (also in the run-up to GNOME 3.4), Sugar 0.95 from the OLPC project, GCC 4.6.2, and various package updates.
    4.9 .. interesting. That's gotta be a typo.

    Always nice to see more distributions switching to systemd. Mageia also has extremely lightweight implentation of KDE that takes less than 180Mt on boot; I find that admirable.
